Highlights of this edition include:

  • Daily fatality rates continue to fall in East Asia, Europe and North America, and countries in these regions are beginning to reopen after two months of lockdown. In South Asia, Sri Lanka was the first country to introduce strict measures and have also maintained measures the longest. This has paid off, as the number of fatalities per 100,000 in population is only 10%.
  • According to our updated model, 72 million people have likely been infected with Covid-19 globally as of 18 May. Reported cases are now growing at only approximately 2% per day, a growth rate that has somewhat stabilized. This is an indication that quarantine measures are working.
  • Road traffic is clearly coming back; in May we expect to see the largest month-over-month growth in history. With countries lifting measures, we have seen spikes in traffic outside rush hours, especially in Europe and North America.
